Save the Date: Trunks and Treasures Online Auction and Virtual Event

For those who haven’t heard, our largest fundraiser of the year (The Big Payback) has been canceled by the community foundation that hosts it for 2023. We’ve been working on an exciting new project to replace the event – and it’s something you will be able to participate in and enjoy along with us: our first annual Trunks and Treasures: An online auction and virtual event for elephants in June 2023. 

Save the date and join us for these two incredible virtual events:

Monday, June 5 – Monday, June 12, 2023

During the online auction, you will be able to bid on special and one-of-a-kind items and experiences over the course of a week. There is a wide range of products and very special treats – something for everyone who loves elephants and Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. 

Saturday, June 10th, from 7 – 8pm EST

Tune in and join us for a live virtual event with unseen footage where you will learn more about the sanctuary, the elephants, our ongoing projects, and items up for bid in the online auction.

This event is the first of its kind for GSE and we’re looking forward to sharing everything with you along the way. 100% of the proceeds will support the elephants at ESB and those still in need of sanctuary. Your support provides critical funding for daily operations, elephant care, and the expansion to make room for more elephants, and we’re excited to share this fun event with you. 

P.S.: If you are interested in sponsoring the auction or donating an item for bid, please contact us at or visit for more information.

Keep your eyes here and on social media, as more details are coming soon!

P.P.S: For those who guessed the elephant this weekend, did you correctly choose Bambi?
